    We have family staying at swan and dolphin. And we’re staying at pop century. Are we allowed to tag along for the extra hours for magic kingdom and Epcot at night with them?

    Hello and welcome, Stacy. I'm so glad you've stopped by planDisney to chat about your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. 

    It sounds like so much fun visiting Walt Disney World with different members of your family. I know you all are going to have a great time. All Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel can take advantage of the Early Theme Park Entry which lets you enter any of the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks 30 minutes before the park opens to other Guests for the day. However, the Extended Evening Theme Park Hours are only for Guests staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort or, Disney Deluxe Villa Resort or other select hotels like the Walt Disney WorldS Swan Hotel and the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. To access these hours, you will need to be a Guest at that particular resort so you won't be able to join in on those evening hours. However, the early morning access applies to all of your group so you guys can enjoy that together instead. 

    If you were curious, here is a list of resorts that are able to take advantage of those Extended Evening Hours:

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
    Disney's Beach Club Resort
    Disney's BoardWalk Inn
    Disney's Contemporary Resort
    Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
    Disney's Polynesian Village Resort

    I'm sorry I don't have better news for you, Stacy. I am absolutely sure that you'll be able to find something fun during those evening hours though. Disney Springs is one of my favorite places to hang out. In the evening there is always live music going on there and a lot of really great places to eat. I love hanging out down there and I hope you'll check it out too. 

    If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. Have fun and enjoy!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
